game in the charts, with the PSP version of Warriors Orochi

, the first title to be released by developer Monolith Soft since being acquired by Nintendo. The new franchise enjoyable a moderate debut with 51,000 units sold at number four.
New at number five, with 44,000 units sold, is the second The Idolm@ster

The rest of the chart is largely unchanged from the previous week, with Super Smash Bros. Brawl
and Wii Fit
